Community Child Care Fund Special Circumstances Grant Opportunity

The Community Child Care Fund (CCCF) Special Circumstances Grant Opportunity is designed to support continuity of child care, in particular in disadvantaged or vulnerable communities, where service viability is affected by an unforeseen factor outside the control of the service such as:

  • a natural disaster or weather event
  • another unforeseen event or circumstance which would result in market failure for the community.

Up to $4 million per year is available in the 2018-19 financial year for allocation under the CCCF Special Circumstances Grant Opportunity.

The amount of funding provided to applicants will be determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the activity being funded and the circumstances of the applicant. Funding provided under this grant opportunity is one-off and short-term.

If your application is seeking less than $10,000 (GST excl.) you should complete the streamlined CCCF special circumstances application form.

If your application is seeking more than $10,000 (GST excl.) and/or relates to an event other than a declared natural disaster or emergency, you should complete the standard CCCF special circumstances application form.

Please refer to the CCCF Special Circumstances Grant Opportunity Guidelines for further details on eligibility, assessment criteria and reporting requirements.
